Summary/Abstract: The aim of the paper is to provide a model of the formation of semantic conventions for Eco’s theory of semiotics, and to defend coherency of the model. The proposed model is based on signaling game theory with information content of the signal extended by the concept of mental reference. The defense of the model focuses on three issues, i.e. the validity of model implementation, its categorical structure, and the problem of referential fallacy.
